Loss mechanisms in resonant spectrophones.


Quality factors and resonant frequencies of a resonant spectrophone have been measured as a function of pressure and the results compared to theoretical predictions which took into account classical surface and volumetric losses and molecular relaxation. Buffer gases investigated included the five noble gases, H(2), N(2), O(2), CO(2), N(2)O, and SF(6… (More)
